National University, founded in 1971 by retired U.S. Navy lieutenant commander David Chigos, is proud to support U.S. Marine Corps Capt. Maggie Seymour in her run across the nation to raise awareness of and support for military-affiliated causes and communities.

As the largest private nonprofit university in San Diego, our mission is to provide accessible, achievable higher education to adult learners. A pioneer in the digital space, we’ve offered online classes for more than 20 years. Today, we educate students in all 50 states and 65 countries through over 120 online and on-campus programs.

At NU, we’re committed to serving those who serve in the military by offering military tuition discounts and scholarships for military personnel and their dependents. In addition to online programs, military students have access to classes on over a dozen military bases and to our Veteran Center designed to ease the transition from military to civilian life. As a Yellow Ribbon school, we accept the post 9/11 GI Bill, so veteran and active-duty students pay virtually no out-of-pocket costs for their education.

Since our founding, we’ve had the honor and privilege of seeing our community grow to over 150,000 alumni worldwide. To learn more about National University, visit
